David Bowie Unveils New ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)’ Single and Video
This morning (Feb. 26), David Bowie released The Stars (Are Out Tonight),’ the second single from his highly anticipated forthcoming record ‘The Next Day.’ Compared to ‘Where Are We Now?‘, the song is an edgy change of pace, returning Bowie to the realm of rock.
Bowie’s new video was directed by Canadian Floria Sigismondi and shot by Jeff Cronenweth. The clip has a bit of a menacing feeling running throughout it. In the video, Bowie and Tilda Swinton play a middle-aged couple whose lives are turned upside down with the arrival of a “celebrity” couple who have some twisted tricks up their sleeves.
The past two months have seen a flurry of activity from Bowie starting with the surprise release of the single ‘Where Are We Now?’ on January 8. That same day, Bowie announced to the world that ‘The Next Day’, his first album of new music in more than a decade, would be released on March 12 in the United States. Most recently, Bowie confirmed that he would be offering fans three different releases on Record Store Day, which will be held on April 20.
After a decade of virtually no news and no new music from David Bowie, his faithful fans must be elated with all of the recent happenings.
